FORT WAYNE, Ind (WFFT) - The suspect in a shooting on Lake Avenue last October was in court Tuesday morning.

Deedee Barnett is accused of the murder of 31 year old Brian Lowe Jr.

Lowe was the passenger in a parked vehicle when Barnett walked up and shot him in the head.

Barnett says he shot Lowe because he believed Lowe was causing trouble in the neighborhood.

Both Barnett’s attorney and the prosecutor’s office are working on a plea agreement, but Barnett’s trial is scheduled to begin April 10th.
